Edmund Pendelton Rogers, Archibald Rogers father, was secretary in 1890. John Hopkins was secretary in 1896. I believe these are E.P. Rogers handwritten notes. Most of the changes noted are then seen updated in the 1896 book. E.P. Rogers is not in the 1896 book at all - he died in February of 1895
|Measurer Charles Van Loan, worked at the Roger's estate, Crumwold Hall, in Hyde Park. |
He built Cyclone, the 1900 ice yacht I own.
|Reindeer was sold to Theodore Wetmore out on Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota. |
It was one of the first of many HR ice yachts to be sold to sportsman out in the mid-west.
|Arnold Brower's membership card was inside the book. Brower acquired John Roosevelt's yacht "Kriss" sometime in the 30s. He and Tom Gilbert were active in sailing the vintage stern steerers off of Hyde Park in the late 1930s. This is the only evidence that the club was trying to become reestablished at that time. There are letters from FDR to Harry Briggs in which FDR gives his blessings to the re-start up of the club in the early 40s. |
Brower was from Hyde Park and he may have gotten ahold of this book back in the 30s.
